RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time a program is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a certain server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation where you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
